Episode Narrative A supercell thunderstorm developed along the dryline over southeastern Swisher County, and quickly became tornadic. This storm produced a family of five tornadoes before it moved into Donley County of the Texas Panhandle. The most damaging tornado passed immediately west of Silverton (Briscoe County) shortly before 16:45 CST, where more than a half dozen utility poles and a few light structures were damaged.
Event Narrative The supercell storm continued to produce tornadoes in a cyclic fashion over the rugged terrain northeast of Silverton. Storm chasers observed a large tornado that developed shortly after 17:00 CST and persisted over open country for more than ten minutes. The tornado was described to visually appear as a large cone with an estimated diameter of one eighth of a mile. No damage was reported.
